Combining horticulture with ecology and social science to create sustainable urban landscapes

J. Hitchmough
This paper deals with how horticulture as a discipline relates to and interacts with the contemporary ideas, frameworks, and disciplines involved in the evolving landscapes of cities. It might equally have been entitled; LSQUOMusings on the soul of horticulture in the 21st CRSQUO. These relationships are rarely discussed in writing, mostly they are either only spoken about in conversation or experienced through practice, and there is little literature or references. Whilst this may be disturbing to a scientifically inclined editor, this does not reduce the importance of these relationships to the development of horticulture.
